Me and vampire movies have never exactly gotten along, but one thing it’s impossible to deny is that vampire movies often pack in some pretty impressive terror hottie counts, and that’s just what we’ll get with Only Lovers Left Alive.
Featuring Tilda Swinton, and Mia Wasikowska, Only Lovers Left Alive follows a pair of vampires who’ve been in love for centuries. And naturally, their love is scarcely an easy thing, even more so when you’re sucking plasma for all eternity.
They’re not even going to start shooting this one until later in the year, so chances are, you’re not going to see this one until at the very least late in 2013. But still, putting Tilda Swinton in a vampire role, well, that’s no mean thing. And hopefully we’ll get to see how this turns out sooner rather than later, so keep it right here for all the latest news on what just might be one of the most impressive vampire movies you’ll see lately.

A little shot of French horror comes our way with Dead Shadows, and of course, we’ll also get terror hotties to boot here in the form of Gwendolyn Gourvenec. And the trailer, as well as the plot itself, all makes things look like we’re going to be in for a pretty sweet ride indeed.
Dead Shadows follows a young man named Chris, whose parents were killed when Halley’s Comet made its big appearance. And now, eleven years later, a new comet is showing up. While most of the people around Chris are looking forward to a party to welcome the comet, Chris can’t quite get in the party mood. And things get worse when the comet makes some changes to the folks on Earth, and not for the better. A relatively unaffected Chris is left to survive in the midst of the horde, but he’ll have a little help from some of the other folks in his apartment building.
The trailer’s looking pretty sweet, and I’m still very eager to find out how this one turns out. Hopefully we’ll get to see this one sooner rather than later, and you know where to keep it for all the latest news on this one.

God Bless America managed to pick up distribution from the TIFF show back last September, and the folks at Magnolia, who got their hands on it, have a nice release schedule in the works for it. But this one’s going to be pretty scary stuff for a variety of reasons.
God Bless America, featuring newly-minted terror hottie Tara Lynne Barr, follows Frank, a man who’s just plain old had enough of America’s collapse into the crevasse of stupidity, incivility and greed. Frank, therefore, sets out to kill all the worst that America has to offer: the stupid, the cruel, and the just plain old repugnant. And when he’s joined by Roxy, a 16 year old girl who shares his sentiments, things get even worse…for the stupid, the cruel and the just plain old repugnant.
Like I said, this is scary for several reasons. One, it heavily features a lot of violence, as well as the musical stylings of Marilyn Manson. And it’s also written and directed by Bobcat Goldthwait. Yes, the guy who spent most of the eighties acting like he was having a non-stop embolism.
Still though, that’s got me sufficiently interested, and this one will be hitting limited theaters May 11th, with a video on demand release April 6th. I’m looking forward to it, especially considering the variety of factors going into this one.

We know full well that True Blood is jam packed with terror hotties, starting with Anna Paquin and running right down a hefty list from there. And now, they’re kicking off a whole new season with some big promotional material.
In Bon Temps, nothing stays buried forever. At least, that’s what the fifth season premise is going on, which in turn relates back to the exhumation of Russell Edgington, nearly three millennia old former vampire king of Mississippi. Current word says that the new season will boast the removal of fully 50 percent more shirts than the previous, so you can tell that this one’s likely to go up on the “hot” and “sexy” scales, no matter which direction your terror hottie fondness runs.
There’s no word as yet as to when the fifth season will actually launch, but it’s a fair bet that there will be plenty of people looking forward to catching this one. Though I’ve heard some stirrings that suggest some are getting tired of the vampire antics after four seasons, so we may be in at the end on this one. Keep it right here for all the latest, as there will no doubt be plenty of news to pass on before it gets started.

A little something Italian comes our way today, folks, with word of True Love coming soon to fully 11 markets. And with a terror hottie like Ellen Hollman (who will be featured heavily throughout the next season of Spartacus) involved, it’s clear that this will be scary and lovely alike.
True Love brings us together with Kate and Jack, newlyweds with secrets they haven’t even told each other yet. But one day, they suddenly wake up in a sealed room together–no doors, no windows, no nothing–which is bare except a series of images projected on the walls, and a monitor with two buttons on it: “yes” and “no”. The monitor then asks a series of questions which they are to answer via the monitor, and all those secrets are about to come out. In spades.
Considering how much mobility this one’s had sales-wise, it’s probably a good bet to say it’ll be coming soon to your neck of the woods, no matter where that particular neck happens to be. I’m eager to see how this one turns out, myself; it might be a pretty good time. But hopefully it will turn out as well as the plot suggests it might.

Here’s a bit of surprising news for you, folks, as the newest Michael Myers–Tyler Mane–started a production company that has brought on the newest Jason Voorhees–Derek Mears–in the upcoming release Compound Fracture.
And you know we wouldn’t be talking about this without terror hotties, and there will be plenty here in Susan Angelo and Renae Geerlings. But the plot, meanwhile, takes us out to the Silna family, who have seen better days. Michael Silna, in fact, just got custody of his nephew, after his sister was murdered by her husband. Michael in turn takes his wife and nephew to his father’s house, who is in the process of building a compound that is safe by every possible measure, even the crazy measures. But when he gets there, he finds the compound his father built is about to be more like a death trap.
I’m looking forward to this one myself, if for no other reason than I’m hoping for loads of amateur mechanical engineering and booby traps aplenty to be in that compound. No word yet on when it releases, but the profoundly screwed up trailer that’s out for this one gives me plenty of reason to look forward to it. So keep it right here for all the latest.

Amanda Plummer looks to join the cast of the upcoming title The Bitch, and from the sounds of things, this one’s going to be pretty impressive. Especially so, in fact, if you like your horror with a little comic edge.
The Bitch follows four women who are out on a trip, and find themselves experiencing a breakdown. Their car out of commission, they do about the only thing they can do: they take shelter in an old mansion. The mansion, not surprisingly, is haunted, but what the mansion is haunted by might be. The mansion is home to an evil spirit known only as “The Bitch”.
With a variety of terror hotties backing up a thoroughly unexpected horror plotline, this could be some pretty good stuff indeed. I’ve seen this kind of thing go very wrong, but at the same time, this might be a pretty good piece of work in the end. They’re set to start shooting this one in March, so hopefully, we’ll see how this one all comes out before too much longer has hit.

Nothing like having a few good terror hotties on hand, and Moderncine’s next title will have more than its share. But what they’ll be involved in should be interesting to say the least when Jug Face makes its appearance.
Jug Face follows a teenage girl who’s got some pretty substantial problems–she’s pregnant. And this is bad enough for any teenage girl until you consider who the baby’s father is: her own brother. And this incestuous union isn’t even the half of her problems, when, as she tries to escape the backwoods nowhere where she lives (and would you, if your brother were your baby’s father?) she discovers that she’s about to be sacrificed to some kind of monstrousity that lives in a pit in the woods.
Featuring Lauren Ashley Carter and Sean Young, there’s more than enough terror hottie in here for anyone, but man, will they ever be doing some weird and creepy stuff. They’re only just starting to shoot this one, so we’ll likely have plenty of good news on this one before too much longer has passed, so keep it right here for all the latest.

The terror hottie packed presentation of Prometheus, the upcoming Alien prequel, rolls on apace, and with only a few months to go until release, we’re getting a look at something extra special. Seems that new stills have emerged featuring our Xenomorph buddies in no less than the full on egg room.
Featuring Noomi Rapace, Charlize Theron and Kate Dickey in the terror hottie slots, Prometheus takes us out to the edges of the known universe, where a group of explorers are about to come across something bigger than they ever imagined: life.The problem, of course, is just what kind of life it is that’s coming out, and the threat it poses not only to our brave band of explorers, but also to every inhabited planet they left behind them.
Sounds like some good stuff to me, I’d say, and I”m certainly looking forward to seeing how it all turns out when this one hits theaters June 8th. Should be a great opening note for a summer movie season that will, no doubt, be packed full of titles.l

If you were thinking that The Pact, featuring Agnes Brucker and Kathleen Rose Perkins in the terror hottie slots, was looking pretty good but you couldn’t get out to Sundance to check it out yourself, well, then I’ve got some news here that will definitely put a punch in your day–it’s got distribution, and through a source that should make you very happy: IFC Midnight.
The Pact follows a woman whose mother has recently passed on. And she’s come back to her old childhood home to settle the estate and try and get some closure. But her old childhood home is about as welcoming as her old childhood, and her old childhood was no great shakes in its own right. Things only get worse when she discovers that she’s not alone in that childhood home of hers, and what’s in there with her is a whole lot nastier than anything her childhood could summon up. But will she survive the trip home?
Sounds pretty good to me, I’d say–I definitely want to see what she’s got waiting for her back home–and though we don’t know just when this one will be coming out, having IFC Midnight involved is a great step. So keep it right here for all the latest on The Pact and everything else that makes its way to stores!

We just got a bit of news in just a little while back about James Wan’s next movie, The Conjuring, and how it was set to have a terror hottie presence in the form of Vera Farmiga. Well, things are getting even more news-based, and we’ve even got another terror hottie to mention, among other things.
You’re looking at Lili Taylor, who may well be part of The Conjuring to follow, which will follow the Perron family. The Perrons believed that they “lived among the dead” for some time, and now, we’re going to find out just what it’s like to have a whole lot of unauthorized roommates.
Even more interesting than the addition of a new terror hottie, there’s also some news of a possible name change. The movie is now going on under the working title of Untitled Warren Files Project. Whatever the title actually ends up being, this one could be some pretty good stuff, especially if it’s done in that terrific style that Insidious was done in. No word on release dates yet, so keep it right here for all the latest.

If you’re looking forward to the latest Edgar Allen Poe excursion into our theaters known as The Raven, you won’t have much longer to wait. And even better, there’s a new poster out underscoring this one.
Featuring Alice Eve in the main terror hottie slot, The Raven follows Edgar Allen Poe, who’s got a pretty big problem on his hands. Someone’s going around killing people in much the same style that his characters do in his various books and short stories. That would generally put most anyone on ground zero with the local constabulary, except Edgar’s taken a lot of the weight off by working with the cops. Though he may have just moved the weight onto his fiancee, who’s been kidnapped by the killer and about to take her for his next victim. Can Edgar save his bride to be? Or will his stories start getting even more depressing?
The poster is a little heavy on the red, but still looks pretty sweet. And even better, we’ll be able to check out just how the whole thing turns out when this hits theaters April 27th, 2012. I’m personally looking forward to this one myself; a little shot of the literary mixed in with some good old fashioned horror / suspense sounds like a thrill. But hopefully, it will hold out against expectations.

For those of you looking forward to the grand resurgence of big names like Robert De Niro, Cillian Murphy, and of course, terror hottie Sigourney Weaver with Red Lights, we have a treat to announce for you: a fresh clip, and it’s looking pretty sweet at that.
By way of recap, Red Lights joins a pair of paranormal investigators as they descend on what they believe will be their newest colossal fraud, so-called psychic Simon Silver. Silver’s been out of the game for the last thirty years, but he’s putting it all on the line in a big challenge to every debunker and skeptic out there, including our two paranormal investigators. And what Simon Silver’s got to show is going to be some impressive–and dangerous–stuff indeed.
Sound good to anyone else? I’m certainly liking the sound of it–De Niro’s horror career has been sorely underrated (I liked Hide And Seek just fine myself) and bringing in Murphy and Weaver is only an improvement from there. No word as yet on release dates, so keep it right here for all the latest, but this one should be a thrill when it finally makes it into wide release. It just had its premiere out at Sundance, so hopefully distribution isn’t too far behind.

Cassadaga’s been steadily moving forward since we first heard about it some months ago, and even better, a whole new poster has shown up. This time around, they’ve dialed it back a bit, but it’s still got a nice scary profile to it.
Cassadaga follows Lily Morel, who’s having a rough time of things lately. In fact, her sister died recently, and as such, she’s looking for a little solace to get her through. She falls in with Cassadaga, a spiritualist community, but what she doesn’t expect is a vengeful ghost haunting Cassadaga, victim of a serial killer known as Geppetto due to his…unique…style of murder. And that vengeful ghost wants payback…but who will be the victim?
Featuring Louise Fletcher and Amy LoCicero, among others, Cassadaga doesn’t have much in the way of a release date yet, so we’ll be keeping an eye out for it. Still though, this could be a pretty sweet piece of movie, based on the trailer and what we’ve seen of the posters of it so far. You’ll want to keep it right here, though, for all the news that comes out on this one between now and then.
January 25th, 2012
James Wan’s career has really been rolling along nicely since the Saw series first took Halloween by storm, but now, it’s coming back on us with a vengeance by way of the upcoming release of The Conjuring. And of course, it’s nothing without its terror hotties, specifically, Vera Farmiga.
The Conjuring follows the Perron family, an actual, true-life family who were around in the seventies and insisted that they “lived among the dead”. And although that’s about as vague a pronouncement as things get, we’ll get to find out just what it means to “live among the dead” when this one comes out.
They’re still getting the cast together, so they haven’t even started shooting, let alone figured out a release date on this one yet. Hopefully sooner rather than later–I’ve seen Wan do some impressive stuff thus far, and if they pull off what they did with Insidious, well, this one’s certainly going to be one to watch.
